Spice

Spice

This month’s theme for Uber is spice, focusing on South Asian inspired content. My most favorite theme so far!

Zaara has released something for the men this round. A Nehru suit and turban. Nehru suits consists of a hip-length tailored jacket with a mandarin collar often worn by Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. I find Nehru suits extremely classy. Along with the suit she is also releasing a mesh turban which I am in love with. I plan to wear the turban with my female av as well. It makes a very unique head accessory. Both the turban and suit come in a variety of colors and if you purchase the fatpacks, you will get a nifty little HUD in there which lets you change their colors with just a click. Click here to see a picture of the fatpack HUD for the suit.  The top part lets you change the color of the jacket, the middle stacks let you change the color of the pants and the bottom cubes are the handkerchief in the pocket color and print choices. The HUD alone makes the fatpack totally worth it and fun to play with. Click here to see the fatpack HUD of the turbans so you can see all the different colors and prints available. Both of these items are at a special discount at Uber right now. Their prices will be raised once they are moved to the Zaara mainstore next month.

Maxi Gossamer has released a gorgeous new jewelry set for the ladies called Maharani at Uber this round. Maharani means ‘a queen of queens’ in Hindi and you will definitely look like royalty while wearing these.  The set consists of necklace, earrings, nosering and head jewel. All items are scripted so color change and with both gold and silver options.

I’m also wearing Hair from Truth and Skin from Glam Affair that are both available at Uber as well. I so love this braid from Truth, he’s outdone himself!

Glamistry

Do you guys remember Kalnins? They used to make some of my most favorite shoes and sunglasses back in the day. Then they kind of disappeared. Well just the other day, the Glamistry store sent out a message to previous Kalnins customers announcing how they have rebranded into Glamistry and sent out a free gift. I talked about it in this plurk.

As soon as I got that message, I teleported over right away to check out the place because I was such a fan of Kalnins. One thing I noticed right away is their wonderful HUD system. With each purchase you receive a HUD that lets you purchase additional colors (at a very reasonable and discounted price) right from the HUD. You don’t even need to go back to the store.

I picked up a pair of these gorgeous Hyacinth and thinking of picking up a few more colors. Most of their shoes come in versions that fit Maitreya, SLink and Belleza feet. Take the SLurl to the mainstore and try on some DEMOs!

The tattoos I’m wearing in both images are from Letis Tattoo. In the first image, the tattoo is not released yet but will be soon, in a few days. It is called Diwali and comes in a beautiful henna color. Letis Tattoo has appliers for many mesh bodies and mesh body parts. Keep an eye on the Letis Tattoo blog for the release date.

Fun with Mesh Heads

(click here for a raw shot) I’ve realized that in the past few weeks I’ve been wearing the LeLutka mesh heads more often than my own classic avatar face. I never thought it would happen where I would start to prefer a mesh head. I think just the quality and being able to play around […] Continue reading →

8 Years of Second Life

It’s Berry’s 8th rezday today and I’m starting to feel quite old. When I first found Second Life, I was in my mid-twenties; quite immature, naive and still discovering myself. After 8 years, I still feel immature and naive and that I have lots more to discover. But I also feel like I have grown. […] Continue reading →
